142-365v3 - The Pill Box Glow

142-365v3 - The Pill Box Glow

Sunrise was one of those straight yellow/orange glow affairs due to the lack of any clouds in the sky this morning, so I turned 180° and photographed this pill box and the glowing sky behind me which looked a lot more interesting.

Now, I have photographed this particular Pill Box (just behind the new Graveyard at the rear of Dunmow Church), but I've never had a strong enough photograph to publish...is it strong enough today...possibly not...but it's the best I have ;-) and sometimes, that's good enough.

140/365v3 - From Dawn to Dusk Diptych

I think this may well be a first for me - both sunrise and sunset from the same day.

Great Dunmow's Doctors Pond this morning was cold and frost - much of the pond was frozen over...to such an extent that the schoolboy with stick couldn't break the ice...This evening's sunset was pretty spectacular - and I wasn't the only person out there photographing it.

128/365v3 - A Slither of Sunrise

We've had some really poor sunrises over the last few weeks. We have either had flat grey skys...and it just gets brighter, but no less grey or we have had brilliant clear blue sky, which just means a flat orange colour...and a lot cooler than you want it to be when stood around outside.

Today's, admittedly, was not a whole lot better, but at least there were some shades of red with the orange light blinking through the flat grey skies! It was still cold enough for a frost though!

It's been a cold and very foggy day today in Dunmow...at least where I live. If you walked up to the High Street you got above the fog and it was a clear blue sky...still very cold though.

113-365v3 - Shooting Ducks in a Barrel

Let's face it, shooting a sunset at Doctors Pond is rather like shooting ducks in a barrel...even with a new manual focus lens I've hired which I'm not convinced I'm focusing quite right yet.

112-365v3 - Dunmow Town Square Christmas 2016

It's not Great is it?

I don't hold the Town Council wholly responsible for this. They spend a lot of time clearing up after the selfish of Dunmow - just look at that rubbish...including in the Christmas Tree. No doubt this will all be cleared away first thing in the morning by the councils street cleaners. Credit where credit's due - the High Street and Market Square look a lot better.

You do have to wonder about where the Town Square is though...it caused all sorts of uproar when it was originally sited here - outside the public toilets pretty much in a car park with a road running through it!

It's not Great is it?

Some fun and games with a Sony Alpha 6000 that I have had in my hands for about 20 minutes. Totally different menu to the NEX7 so took me a while to get it to shoot at something like what I wanted. This is a bit of a test shot(s) that I took and pushed the ISO to 3200 becasue it was handheld...I won't be doing that again ;-). A bit grainy but looks OK when cropped down from its original 7 shot 16,615 x 4,559 px pano.

98-365v3 Barnacle Geese

I ventured out first thing this morning into a rather dark and overcast morning and took a walk around Doctors Pond. I was surprised to find a pair of Barnacle Geese, which I haven't seen here before - they don't normally get this far south and east in the UK

87/365v3 Autumn Sunset over Doctors Pond

87/365v3 Autumn Sunset over Doctors Pond

It's Saturday so it's time for a panorama. Today it is of Doctors Pond in Great Dunmow, Essex at sunset. This is an HDR image made up of 5 HDR images, each made from 5 original images, so 25 images in all (5 per portion). All stitched together in Kolor AutoPano 4.2 and then fiddled with in Lightroom and Photoshop. If you were to print it out at 100% you would need a pretty specialist printer as it would be 68 by 28 inches or 172 x 72 cm. You'd need a pretty large wall to hang it on as well ;-)

Who said size doesn't matter?

77-365v3 A Day Late and a Dollar Short

There has been such a furore over the last few days about the super moon and, as an amateur photographer who follows such things, my feeds have been ram-jam full of pictures of the moon. I've kept away from it for the most part mainly due to the relatively poor weather we have had here over the past few days.

When i went our for my early morning walk this morning I was delighted that the heavy rain had finally moved away and left a sparkling sunrise...and the moon, still large in the sky, if not quite full anymore.

So, here you have Doctors Pond in Great Dunmow with the ex-super moon slowly setting in the background...and the ducks making a bee-line for me (they were sorely disappointed).

The first frost of this Autumn this morning, it made a pleasant change from the unseasonally warm weather we have had over the last few weeks.

66-365v3 Firework Finale over Doctors Pond

I wanted to get the fireworks from the local display appearing over Doctors Pond, which I have done before. The wind didn't help in getting decent shots of the fireworks today - this shot was of the finale explosion at the end of the display and you can see the accompanying laser show in the background as well.

Some days you just have to use what you have.

This shot is from my morning walk and is one of those emergency shots you take, just so you have something in the bag. Today I was glad to have it as this was the best part of the day weather wise and I really didn't fancy trying to create something this evening...so here you have a typical Essex bridge, concrete and ugly as sin, but it keeps my feet dry as I cross the River Chelmer.

61/365v3 Coming At Me Out of the Fog

It was a proper Halloween morning, thick with fog today so I trotted down to the Churchyard to get some hackneyed shots of graves and memorials in the fog.

I've always enjoyed this particular memorial, I think it's the only one of its sort in the Great Dunmow graveyard (although I haven't examined the graveyard in any great detail). I'm not sure I have particularly caught the foggy atmosphere as well as I had hoped...but there you go.
